Model Answer:
I do not have the luxury to use a private car or a private jet whenever I plan to travel because we neither own a car nor a jet! So public transport is our only means to commute or travel to a distant place. However, not all journeys on public transport are equally pleasant. Some are comfortable and I tend to remember such pleasant journeys. I would like to thank you for this nice topic and share one such delightful trip that I made on public transport - more specifically on a train.

I took this journey with three of my friends around five months ago. It was perhaps early April this year when we decided to travel to a famous coastal city in our country which happens to be one of the most famous tourists spots in our country. As planned, we made the journey at the beginning of May. On a sunny and bright day in early May, I, along with my friends, went to the train station and took our scheduled train to make the journey.

The coastal city that we were heading to is called "Marina Coast" and it was at least 400 kilometres away from our hometown. This coastal city has so many tourist attractions and options for adventure that there is hardly any person in our country who had not visited this place at least once in their lifetime. We have heard about its marvellous spots and its lively activities but had never been there. So we decided to make the journey.

We could have taken the air route but it would have been much more expensive for us. So we decided to take the train. The train journey that we made was so enjoyable and comfortable that I can easily certify it as one of the most satisfying journeys that I have ever made. The train arrived on time - the first sign that it was our lucky day - and then it started its engine on time as well. We got a nice bogie where we were only six persons instead of being in a roomful of people. After a while, the train started to move faster but it was so smooth. I was listening to my favourite music while also enjoying the natural beauty from my window.

The experience was breathtaking. During our journey, the train stopped at two stations where we left the train and enjoyed some local delicacies. The next morning we reached our destination which was another lovely surprise for us. Overall, it was a great journey on public transportation.
